KUALA LUMPUR, April 24 — The retail prices of RON97 and RON95 petrol, as well as diesel will remain unchanged at RM3.47, RM2.05 and RM2.15 per litre respectively from April 25 to May 1.

The Ministry of Finance (MoF) in a statement today said the prices were fixed based on the weekly retail prices of petroleum products, under the Automatic Pricing Mechanism (APM) formula.

“To protect the consumers from the increase of global oil price, the government will maintain the ceiling price of RON95 at RM2.05 per litre and diesel at RM2.15 a litre, even though the market price for both products had increased beyond the ceiling price,” said MoF in the statement.
